SEMINAR
Art Forum: Helen Grace
Thursday, 2 October 2014 at 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
1st Floor Seminar Room, Peter Karmel Building, 4 Childers Street, ANU
Scanning: Ubiquitous Media, Image Processing and Automatons This is the age of the unprecedented proliferation of expression through ubiquitous computing, life-logging and automatic imaging systems. Has human vision been machinized to such an extent that perception itself might be regarded as a technique of animation? The exhibition Out of Sight: Proof, was made by an automatic device, the Swedish designed, Taiwanese manufactured, 'Narrative Clip', attached to a body-tripod. It uses sensors to track daily movement and location and uploads geotagged and time-coded images to a server so they can be viewed on an iPhone or iPad. The process raises questions about the limits of privacy and the ethics of the image in its current metamorphoses. While framed by large conceptual issues, this research is centrally focused on new imaging methods and new methods of image analysis.
